"With this eloquent disc, Bibb solidifies his spot on the Blues A-List." - Billboard

Already enjoying success in Europe, Eric Bibb is becoming a familiar face – and voice – in the U.S. acoustic folk-blues scene. His unique talent continues to draw critical acclaim around the world. Twice nominated for the W.C. Handy Awards and winner of the “Best Newcomer” title in the British Blues Awards, Bibb has been appropriately described as “discreetly awesome” and “a total original.”

The son of 1960s folk and musical theater singer and television personality Leon Bibb; nephew of the world-famous jazz pianist John Lewis, a member of the Modern Jazz Quartet; and the godson of singer/activist/actor Paul Robeson, he got his first steel stringed guitar at age seven, and was playing in the house band for his father’s show, Someone New by age sixteen.

He has performed at jazz and blues festivals (Montreal, San Francisco), world music festivals (Chicago), folk festivals (Edmonton, Vancouver) and at universities and performing arts venues across the US.

A performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience, both musically and spiritually. His music, like his personality, is intimate, assured and passionate. States Bonnie Raitt about his latest album, “Eric’s new album is a real gem … as soulful and funky as it is inspirational…this is music to uplift your soul.”
